Activists stage a pagan rite as believers offer prayers in Lavra
The believers noted that a new quasi-religion is being born right before their eyes with tridents instead of a cross.
Supporters of the OCU held a pagan ritual to the prayers of the believers of the UOC, defending the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra, according to the UOJ.
The video shows how the activists raised one hand up and hold their fingers, depicting the trident sign.
“Take a look at a strange ritual (to the music from the speakers) of the newest quasi-religion. The adherents and bubbles of this party make a trident sign in the direction of the sky, which, presumably, imitates the coat of arms of Ukraine of the thawed criminal group ‘Svoboda’," the report said.
“Such people desperately need the Lavra. Crosses can only be replaced with tridents, icons – with flags and portraits of patriots, and services can be served in the form of rock concerts,” the eyewitnesses commented the scene.
As the UOJ previously reported, Metropolitan Pavel spoke about activists with Satan on T-shirts.
